Los Angeles Poker Rooms To Now Operate At Full Capacity


According to a report by cardschat.com, Gavin Newsom, the Governor of California finally gave permission to re-open poker businesses in the Golden State on June 15. The rules stated that those who are vaccinated will not have to wear masks. But other individual businesses have been given permission to set their own rules.  

Reports stated that even though Newsom gave permission to return to normalcy, all dealers, cashiers, security guards and floor managers were made to wear masks at the two largest poker rooms in the world—Bicycle Casino and Commerce Casino.

Further reports stated that about 20% of poker players in these Los Angeles poker rooms continue to wear face coverings. But a few perks still seem to be missing like player comps, which are anticipated to return only in 2022. According to many Commerce dealers, the pandemic forced the casinos to cut back even on the freebies.

According to a report by pokernews.com, players will not get cocktail service when they arrive. However, the tableside drink service is expected to return soon. Further reports state that poker rooms will forbid players from getting food back to the table. News reports also stated that a few players in a $5/$5 game even complained to staff members. The players had to get up to get food and eat away from the table. 

The reopening of California did not affect the business of Los Angeles poker rooms to a great extent. The shift manager at The Bike reportedly said that the business didn’t spike up at all since June 15. Otherwise, the Bicycle Casino, being the biggest poker room in the world with 185 poker tables, was always busy even amidst the pandemic.

Also, plexiglass dividers have also almost disappeared at Commerce and The Bike; the tables had no dividers for the first time since COVID-19 pandemic. However, a few still remain in place. So, the reopening hasn’t brought a major difference in terms of business except for vaccinated players being exempted from wearing face masks.
